This message is generated after *every* incoming message that sendmail
receives.  Does anyone have any idea how I can fix/remove it?  I'm running
version 7.4 of tcp wrappers, and sendmail 8.6.  Direct replies to me will
be appreciated.  Thanks!

virtually,

put this in your /etc/hosts.allow:

in.comsat: LOCAL

or just don't wrap in.comsat.  it will reduce the size of your syslog a lot!
